Did You Know . . . ?
. . . that a cicada can chirp so loudly you can hear it from half a mile away. When they are larva, cicadas suck juice from tree roots; the adult cicada, however, lives in trees. Adults live for thirty to forty days, but once the female cicada comes above ground, she mates, lays her eggs, and dies.

From a bend in the road we first saw the river
Where we would sunbathe, study, learn to wait
For crabs to grab the bait
Ideas to grab our minds. Sailboats point always
To the wind, the river gives us strength, renews,
We begin and then begin again.
. . .
Here at this place of beginnings, we leave
Shadows on the nurturing shore,
This bend in our lives, St. Mary's
The River, the nurturing shore.
